Another Wine Society treat – 2015 Les Vignes Retrouvées, Saint Mont
2015 Les Vignes Retrouvées, AC St Mont,
This is another treat from The Wine Society – part of the 30 bottles we ordered. Les Vignes Retrouvées comes from the very well run Plaimont Co-operative. It is billed as a tribute to three local white grape varieties – Gros Manseng, Petit Courbu and Arrufiac.
Les Vignes Retrouvées has more weight and structure than last night's wine – Le Gaillac Perlé but is equally attractive with good length and well balanced. It has sufficient weight to drink well with a a grilled fish or with white meats including a simply roast chicken. Good to see local varieties being given attention.
